A Horse is A Horse


This is a reproduction of a horse etching that I did many years ago when I was still in art school.  That was when the horse was speaking the words "I'm a longing" the number 4 was "for" and "you" was a letter U that made up a puddle at the horses feet.  This was a dry point etching through and through created on the surface of a copper plate.  I never intended to take printmaking but needed such an elective to finish my course work.  I was so glad that I did because it is a wonderful process and I only regret that I didn't do more like this one.  I sold one of these digital reproductions just earlier this week and was told that it would be part of an interior design contest to be published.  I still have more etchings that I did of antique dolls that lean towards slightly disturbing but that is basically how I saw them to begin with.
